  1. I want to try this recipe but I guess you could be missing a step. Do you need to add water so that the flour mixture can cook and turn out as shown in your picture above? Please let me know. Thanks,

  2. Hi

    Adding of water is included as part of grinding, so that you can take a small ball of flour and press it and then cook it in the oil

  7. A very nice receipie - as i usually hate deep frying but in winters kids like to have something like tikki, bhajiyas pakoras, samosas etc - this is a healthier option.
    Just wanted to know whether the consistancy should be like idli maavu or like a kozhakattai maavu - how can we make tikki shpe with the batter of idli maavu consistency?

    1. Hi Bharathi, thanks for your comments. In the 4th step i have mentioned to stir the batter in low flame to get a thicker consistency that will make your batter thick like a dough. You can cool it off to make small patties.

    1. Hi Revathi, we traditionally use rice instead of rawa, but i am sure you can substitute raw rice with raw rice rava. But soak the rava before grinding it.
